Manipur to introduce Sanskrit in schools and colleges


Manipur is all set to introduce Sanskrit as a subject in the curriculum in a few selected schools and colleges in the state, education minister S Rajen Singh said on Thursday.

The minister was interacting with media persons during a visit along with his team at the Sanatan Sanskrit Vidyalaya, Charhajare in Kangpokpi district.

He also maintained that Manipur University is also planning to open a department for this subject. The concerned authority will be approached to speed up the process, he added.

Minister Rajen assured that the existing infrastructure and building of Sanatan Sanskrit Vidyalaya, Charhajare, will also be renovated soon. Education Commissioner, education Director and other concerned officials were also instructed to take up necessary actions in this regard.

“All the government schools and colleges should have authenticated land certificates issued by the competent authority i.e. revenue department. And the land should be in the name of the concerned schools and colleges,” said minister Rajen.

If their land records are not clear, the officials should work out to settle the issue, and appropriate initiatives for the welfare of the education sector be taken up, he added.
